Plumbing 9-1-1: What to Do When Disaster Strikes

If you’re experiencing a plumbing disaster, don’t panic. Take these simple steps to get the situation under control and minimize damage to your home or business. Then, call the Elek SuperSTARS, day or night: 610.432.7001

  • Shut off water at the source. For a localized problem, close the valve at the base of the affected sink or toilet. For large-scale emergencies, shut down water at your home’s main valve. If you are unsure of where your home’s main valve is, have a plumbing expert locate it for you.
  • Keep plumbing contact information in a handy location. When an emergency arises, dial Elek Plumbing’s emergency team for immediate assistance.
  • If you have identified the source of a leak, use plumbing tape or old rags to slow or stop it.
  • If you are unable to open a drain with a plunger, avoid using chemical cleaners during a drain clog emergency. These caustic chemicals can damage pipes, emit dangerous fumes and complicate the situation for your plumbing technician.
